This technique will undoubtedly shake up the roster and with the possible inclusion of more NXT call-ups being made, may just be what the company needs to reduce criticism from its fans.
As this news is still very recent, there has not yet been any confirmation regarding what will happen to certain superstars or titles, once the brand split has been brought into place.
One area of the main WWE roster in particular which could and should undoubtedly benefit from the brand split, is the Women’s division.
As Wrestling Inc has reported, Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Live noted that the general impression is that the Women’s division is likely to be kept to one show, though this has not yet been made definite.
If this is the case however, this provides a whole host of new opportunities for the company to invest in its female talent during every episode of the aforementioned show.
Fans will be able to be more aware of what is going on in specific story lines and being genuinely interest in angles within this division, instead of watching meaningless filler matches which are only put on a show because they have to be.
Instead, members of the WWE Universe will know that a Women’s division segment is due to take place on a specific episode, which will also encourage the company to produce longer and more worthwhile matches.
As well as this, WWE should look to capitalise upon the opportunities provided by the brand split with regard to its current Women’s division Championship Titles.
At present, there is just one belt on offer within this section of the company which, given the huge array of talent within it, speaks volumes as to how much attention the WWE really pays to its female talent.
Instead, those in charge should look to incorporate a WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Title belt, not least if they are looking to bring up yet more female talent from the incredible NXT roster.
In addition, the company could also introduce a Mixed Tag team division as it will undoubtedly have several WWE superstars to team up which would in turn, finally give them a chance to prove their potential.
Overall there is no doubt that a brand split will bring about several exciting changes for the whole of the WWE roster and Universe and how the company promotes its Women’s division following it, will undoubtedly be exciting to see.
